Sledding Hills and Slopes North of Boston

Best Sledding Hills and Slopes on Boston's North Shore

When it snows, we love to slip and slide the afternoon away. It's always a lot of fun, and it's a great way to get out and explore some new places. Local parks, golf courses, schoolyards, libraries, parks and even the backs and sides of buildings. If it doesn't make sense to drive around in the car, break out the shovels and start making your own hill by forming huge pile of snow in your own yard!

Sled Safety reduces the risk of injury and allows everybody to make it home safe
Sledding is a great way to kill an afternoon on snowy days, have some fun with the family and get some outdoor winter exercise. I loved sledding as a kid, but now when I see 'B' pretending to have 'accidents' on the sledding hill we made in our front yard, I cringe to think of the possible dangers involved in sledding. Wiping out is fun, until...
